Genie Dumoulin – Genie is a native of Beacon, New York. She and her husband, Ron, lived in that upstate NY until after their daughters, Michelle and Shawna, were married in 1989.
Being able to move to Florida was their dream, made possible through Genie’s position at IBM where she was a DB2 database designer, programmer, analyst and administrator. After several years there, their love of the beach life was not a match for the call of the first grandchild in NC and Genie took an early retirement from IBM Boca landing a database development job in Greenville, SC so that they would be closer to their daughters, who were both in NC. Now after being here since 1994, there are 3 grandchildren, all living within a few miles from their present home in Landrum, which makes the move all the more enjoyable.
Genie & Ron also have pet goats and find the area very similar to the upstate NY area where they grew up. The rural lifestyle, farms, mountains, and friendly people give it a familiar feeling.
With downsizing, Genie’s job in Greenville came to an end and the call back to her love of real estate became strong again. Genie had owned her own Real Estate business, Three Wishes Real Estate, near Poughkeepsie, NY in the 1970s and 1980s, along with her position at IBM, before transferring to FL.
After working with a broker in Landrum for 4 years, she joined Foothills Realty several years ago to be able to provide a wider area to her clients. She is a Realtor/Broker and a member of the Spartanburg County, SC MLS covering a large area of upstate SC, and the Carolina’s MLS covering Western NC as well as Upstate, SC.
This is a beautiful area with a friendly atmosphere, a laid-back life style, and beautiful homes in every price range.
Genie has always felt that being honest and fair with people is her best quality. She will work with you whether you are buying or selling to make it as rewarding an experience as possible.
Call her anytime at 828-817-8133 or at the office at 828-859-1255.
Stewart Cameron – A native of Polk County, NC; I moved back to the area 8 years ago with my husband and two boys (now ages 15 and 8). We wanted a slower paced kind of lifestyle and area in which to raise our children. There are so many wonderful opportunities for cultural enrichment as well. The Tryon/Polk County area is rich with local galleries, artisans, musicians, wineries, and theater – just to name a few. I would love to show you the reasons I moved home and help make it yours too!
Since receiving my license in 2000, I have worked in many facets of real estate. Beginning my career in Property Management, moving on to New Home Sales and Internet Sales for K. Hovnanian Homes in the Charlotte, NC market, and finally finding my passion in General Brokerage. I have been listing and selling homes in this capacity since 2008. I love helping people sell and buy homes, and also get to cultivate my helping nature with the agents that work in my office. I am a licensed South Carolina Broker as well.
